Book Bound Writers' Retreat - Opportunity

We are delighted to announce that we will be sponsoring a place on the Book Bound Writers’ Retreat in order to advance and support inclusivity within children’s publishing.

The Book Bound Retreat is a three-day intensive children's fiction writing workshop, run by four editors who are also published authors. Skylark Literary has joined forces with the talented Book Bound team to offer a writer from an under-represented group a free place on the retreat taking place on 11- 13 May 2018.

Interested candidates should apply using the usual Book Bound application, plus an additional personal statement. All the details can be found at
